SANTA CLARA, Calif., May 30, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Marvell Technology Group Ltd. (NASDAQ: MRVL), a leader in infrastructure semiconductor solutions, today reported financial results for the first quarter of fiscal year 2020. Revenue for the first quarter of fiscal 2020 was $662 million, which exceeded the midpoint of the Company's guidance provided on March 7, 2019.

GAAP net loss for the first quarter of fiscal 2020 was $(48) million, or $(0.07) per diluted share. Non-GAAP net income for the first quarter of fiscal 2020 was $105 million, or $0.16 per diluted share. Cash flow from operations for the first quarter was $166 million.

"Marvell continues to take bold steps despite a challenging near-term environment to improve our portfolio through strategic capital deployment and drive long term shareholder value" said Matt Murphy, Marvell's President and CEO. "With the production ramp of our first 5G products later this year, and a growing pipeline of new wireless infrastructure design wins, Marvell is well positioned to becoming a leading silicon supplier to this market."

Marvell's second quarter guidance takes into account the estimated impact from the U.S. Government's recently announced export restriction to one of our customers.

Second Quarter of Fiscal 2020 Financial Outlook

  • Revenue is expected to be $650 million +/- 3%.
  • GAAP gross margin is expected to be 53% to 54%.
  • Non-GAAP gross margin is expected to be 63% to 64%.
  • GAAP operating expenses are expected to be $370 million to $380 million.
  • Non-GAAP operating expenses are expected to be $285 million to $290 million.
  • GAAP diluted loss per share is expected to be $(0.09) to $(0.05) per share.
  • Non-GAAP diluted income per share is expected to be $0.13 to $0.17 per share.

On May 6, 2019, Marvell announced its intent to acquire Aquantia, Corp. ("Aquantia"), a publicly traded company.   Marvell anticipates that upon closing, this acquisition will position it to further capitalize on automotive in-vehicle networking and strengthen its Multi-Gig Ethernet portfolio for enterprise infrastructure, data center and access. The transaction is expected to close by December 2019, subject to regulatory approval as well as other customary closing conditions, including the adoption by Aquantia shareholders of the merger agreement.

On May 20, 2019, Marvell announced definitive agreements to purchase Avera Semiconductor, the application specific integrated circuit ("ASIC") business of GlobalFoundries Inc.Marvell expects that upon closing, this acquisition will bring together Avera Semiconductor's leading custom design capabilities with its advanced technology platform and scale, creating a leading ASIC supplier for wired and wireless infrastructure while extending its reach in 5G base stations. The transaction is expected to close by January 2020 pending receipt of regulatory approvals and other customary closing conditions.

On May 29, 2019, Marvell announced a definitive agreement under which NXP will acquire Marvell's Wi-Fi Connectivity business Marvell anticipates that this divestiture will unlock substantial value, enhance its margins upon closing and accelerate its transformation into a leading infrastructure semiconductor solution supplier. The transaction is expected to close by March 2020, subject to customary closing conditions and regulatory approvals.

Conference Call

Marvell will conduct a conference call on Thursday, May 30, 2019 at 1:45 p.m. Pacific Time to discuss results for the first quarter of fiscal 2020. Interested parties may join the conference call by dialing 1-844-647-5488 or 1-615-247-0258, pass-code 3160468. The call will be webcast and can be accessed at the Marvell Investor Relations website at http://investor.marvell.com/ with a replay available following the call until Friday, June 7, 2019.

Discussion of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Non-GAAP financial measures exclude the effect of share-based compensation expense, amortization of the inventory fair value step up, amortization and write-off of acquired intangible assets, acquisition-related costs, restructuring and other related charges, litigation settlement, and certain expenses and benefits that are driven primarily by discrete events that management does not consider to be directly related to Marvell's core business.

Marvell uses a non-GAAP tax rate to compute the non-GAAP tax provision. This non-GAAP tax rate is based on Marvell's estimated annual GAAP income tax forecast, adjusted to account for items excluded from GAAP income in calculating Marvell's non-GAAP income, as well as the effects of significant non-recurring and period specific tax items which vary in size and frequency. Marvell's non-GAAP tax rate is determined on an annual basis and may be adjusted during the year to take into account events that may materially affect the non-GAAP tax rate such as tax law changes; significant changes in Marvell's geographic mix of revenue and expenses; or changes to Marvell's corporate structure. For the first quarter of fiscal 2020, a non-GAAP tax rate of 4.5% has been applied to the non-GAAP financial results.

Marvell believes that the presentation of non-GAAP financial measures provide important supplemental information to management and investors regarding financial and business trends relating to Marvell's financial condition and results of operations. While Marvell uses non-GAAP financial measures as a tool to enhance its understanding of certain aspects of its financial performance, Marvell does not consider these measures to be a substitute for, or superior to, financial measures calculated in accordance with GAAP. Consistent with this approach, Marvell believes that disclosing non-GAAP financial measures to the readers of its financial statements provides such readers with useful supplemental data that, while not a substitute for GAAP financial measures, allows for greater transparency in the review of its financial and operational performance.

Externally, management believes that investors may find Marvell's non-GAAP financial measures useful in their assessment of Marvell's operating performance and the valuation of Marvell. Internally, Marvell's non-GAAP financial measures are used in the following areas:

  • Management's evaluation of Marvell's operating performance;
  • Management's establishment of internal operating budgets;
  • Management's performance comparisons with internal forecasts and targeted business models; and
  • Management's determination of the achievement and measurement of certain performance-based equity awards (adjustments may vary from award to award).

Non-GAAP financial measures have limitations in that they do not reflect all of the costs associated with the operations of Marvell's business as determined in accordance with GAAP. As a result, you should not consider these measures in isolation or as a substitute for analysis of Marvell's results as reported under GAAP. Marvell expects to continue to incur expenses similar to the non-GAAP adjustments described above, and exclusion of these items from Marvell's non-GAAP net income should not be construed as an inference that these costs are unusual, infrequent or non-recurring.
